CEO Marco van Zijverden was given the award by Jan Kees de Jager, former Dutch Secretary of State and Minister of Finance. The winner was picked from a select group of five nominated companies.
The companies were selected from hundreds of family businesses, in collaboration with partners KPMG and ABN AMRO. The nominees were evaluated extensively over the last few months on the basis of eight selection criteria. The companies were also personally visited by the jury.

The Dutch Flower Group invests heavily in sustainability, and in the areas where they are active they support good causes and set up initiatives to improve the quality of life and well-being of people in need, according to the jury. The company's motto is "Making Life Colorful", and knowledge, quality, service, innovation and sustainability are central to their business philosophy.
Previously, Gassan Diamonds (2013), Westland Cheese (2014), Royal De Heus (2015), Enza Zaden (2016) and the Terberg Group (2017) received the award.
